  • 3 cups Jasmine rice cooked and chilled
  • 1/2 pound skinless chicken breasts cooked and shredded
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 cup peas and carrots frozen
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup soy sauce


  • Heat the sesame oil in a large wok on medium high heat.*
  • Add the veggies, onion, and garlic to the wok, and cook 'til somewhat tender but still slightly crisp, maybe 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Make a well in the middle of the veggies, and scramble the eggs into the veggies.
  • Stir the chicken into the mixture.
  • Then add the rice and stir it into the mixture, mixing everything together really well.
  • Add the soy sauce and stir fry everything together.
  • When everything has been heated thoroughly, it's ready to serve and enjoy. 


*Make sure all of your ingredients are ready to go before you heat the sesame oil. It will be a super quick cook time, so it's important to have everything ready to go.
